This is a 1* free play on the Texas Rangers over the Houston Astros on Saturday night (7:10 EST).
Yu Darvish (5-1, 2.56 ERA) gets the call for the visitors; Darvish threw a career-high 127 pitches vs. the Red Sox on Sunday, going seven frames and finishing with 14 K's. Darvish afterwards commented that he could throw 200 pitches a game no problem: "I have no plans to change my pitching style; I'm not concerned about my pitch counts," Darvish said Thursday. "I don't look for strikeouts or go for strikeouts. I know my pitching coaches are concerned about my pitch counts because of all the strikeouts. But as long as I have four days to rest, I don't care how many pitches I throw." The 26-year old phenom will be opposed by the 34-year old Erik Bedard (0-2, 7.36 ERA) who will once again be moved from the bullpen to make this start. Bedard has made five starts and two relief appearances for Houston this year, going 0-2 with a deplorable 7.36 ERA and a 1.82 WHIP. While I almost never play favorites of this size, in this case I believe that the clear talent discrepancy both on the mound and at the plate absolutely justifies in laying the larger price. How about you? What do you think?
